Al Martin’s name is synonymous with comedy in New York City, and is responsible for launching the careers of many top comedians working today. Martin’s first venture in the comedy club business was in 1988 when he established the New York Comedy Club out of a need to help and showcase talented comedians. An accomplished comedian himself, Al was a National Headliner with numerous television credits such as The Joan Rivers Show, Geraldo and Evening At The Improv. Al was always more than just a comedian; he was an activist for the comedy community serving as Vice President of the Professional Comedians Association, and was instrumental in the organization dedicated to bringing health insurance and improving working conditions for comics. Although performing was a love for Martin he found his niche as a comedy club owner. He soon found himself helping his fellow comedians that he had once worked beside. Sarah Silverman, Lisa Lampanelli, Brett Butler, Tracy Morgan and Wanda Sykes are just a few comedians who have graced his stages over the years. New York Comedy Club became the first comedy club with two showrooms in 1997. Al was one of the first club owners to embrace diversity in the comedy world by establishing the first Latino Comedy Night at New York Comedy Club. He’s also facilitated and welcomed to his stage shows featuring gay, urban and Asian communities. In 2000 Martin opened New York Comedy Club in Boca Raton, which he ran successfully until late 2006. With the success of two clubs Al decided to expand his brand and in 2003 opened Broadway Comedy Club, located in the heart of Times Square. Martin again took a risk in opening Broadway Comedy, the only bi- level entertainment complex with three showrooms in NYC, serving over 600 comedy lovers from around the world nightly. In 2005 he partnered with Barry Katz, executive producer of NBC’s Last Comic Standing to run Boston Comedy Club, giving Martin the bragging rights to being the first person to run three comedy clubs in New York City. In the Summer of 2012 Martin expanded his comedy ventures into Greenwich Village, in New York City with the opening of Greenwich Village Comedy Club, from day one the club has been filled every night with a lively downtown crowd and top comedians making them laugh! Martin’s clubs attract comedy fans from around the world including some of the biggest celebrities from Jay-Z & Beyonce, Andre Aggasi, Jimmy Fallon, Montel Williams, and Harry Connick Jr. On stage or behind the scenes, Al Martin will go down in history as the King of New York Comedy. Martin is a brilliant thinker and innovator of his time, and has made New York City the World’s Capital of Comedy.

Every week the cast of EIGHT IS NEVER ENOUGH Improv Comedy presents amazing entertainment for all ages. AKA Improv 4 Kids this show keeps it PG movie clean. No language or sexual material. The result is amazing story telling and great theater. Many kids an parents get on stage to participate in the show, while the entire scrip is improvised basedon audience suggestions. CLICK HERE for full calendar of IMPROV at the Broadway Comedy Club (AKA New York Improv Theater)

Saturdays 8pm at the Broadway Comedy Club

Not great for “kids” the 8pm show by EIGHT IS NEVER ENOUGH – AKA LMAO Off Broadway – is often perfect for teens guests. Designed with adults in mind, the shows are a true PG-13. There may be one or two words, and some adult themed comedy, but generally tame compared to many TV shows and movies teens watch today. I tell parents, if the kids are watching South Park and other edgy cable TV , they will learn nothing new watching this show. CLICK HERE for full calendar of IMPROV at the Broadway Comedy Club (AKA New York Improv Theater)

PRIVATE EVENTS – Improv Comedy shows are great at any family event. We host at the club 24/7 and send shows nationwide. Very popular are kids birthday parties. If you are tired of the same old mediocre clowns and musicians, kick it up a notch with interactive improv comedy. We have shows appropriate for ages 5 and up. Improv 4 Teens even plays after proms, graduations, sweet 16s and more. Also Bar / Bat Mitzvahs, Kids entertainment at reunions and weddings, bring your kids to work day etc.  For more info and to book your event email eightimprov@gmail.com
